We spend so much time sitting at our work desk, and it makes perfect sense for us to set it up properly with the ancient Feng Shui philosophy as a guide to maximise our well-being and success.
It isn’t that hard to Feng Shui your office desk. First, mentally draw a tic-tac-toe grid on your desk to divide it into a 9-square grid. The grid will act as the Bagua map on your office desk, which will help you decide what’s best to be placed on the grid.
